There is jumps racing from Dundalk on Friday
There is jumps racing from Dundalk on Friday

Timeform pick out three bets from Dundalk on Friday.


George Boole - 19:05 Dundalk

John Joseph Murphy sent out George Boole's dam Valbonne to win a maiden over this C&D, and after going close over six furlongs here last time, he may well be able to get off the mark here. Though George Boole is by a sprinter, it is reasonable to think that he will stay the extra furlong here and he should have more to offer based on his progressive profile.

Our Rachael - 20:05 Dundalk

Though she has yet to win a race on the Flat or over jumps, Our Rachael did run her best race to date over hurdles last time, finishing third at Downpatrick. She probably should have finished better than sixth on her last Flat start at the Curragh, having lost momentum at a vial stage before finishing with a flourish. She has been dropped 4 lb in the weights since, and is worth chancing now down in grade.

Keukenhof - 21:05 Dundalk

Johnny Murtagh's Keukenhof is by Dutch Art but has stamina on her dam's side and, based on the way she has been shaping up recently, is worth another crack at this trip. She took a while to get going when hitting the frame at this track over a mile on her last two starts, and looks a good option now dropped in class. Surprisingly is unexposed and would be the obvious danger on her handicap debut.
